Plant Common Name

Rose Coreopsis

General Description

The pretty rose coreopsis ‘Sweet Dreams’ is a dreamy perennial for the garden that offers many bright flowers for much of the summer.

North American in origin, it forms small clumps of fine, green foliage that become laden with many bi-colored daisies of raspberry-purple and white. These appear from summer to fall and bloom best if deadheaded regularly. Plants spread slowly by rhizomes.

Grow rose coreopsis in sites with full to partial sun and fertile amply drained soil. It’s ideal for sunny perennial borders, rock gardens, butterfly gardens and may also be grown in containers.
